/FLANEURZ AT YOUR FEET: AN INNOVATIVE CONCEPT

 

Welcome to modern times!

Being able to turn any pair of shoes into roller skates was a childhood dream for many of you, and you are a lot to love this innovation. Caravan Palace band musician and music composer, Paul-Marie, told us that he found a second youth with his first pair of Adidas Top Ten.

 

 I was skating when I was a teenager and when I saw the first Flaneurz ad, I dreamt about a new life on wheels.

 

It’s not only use for walking and running but also for skating, jumping, riding and grinding. Flaneurz, is a symbol of a state of mind: an independent, passionate, agile, urban, responsible and elegant flâneur.Not only roller skaters have been seduced by a Flaneurz pair in their daily life. Clément explains that he discovered a passion for this sliding sport.

 

 I wasn’t interested by the skating world 3 years ago, but thanks to Flaneurz products, I discovered a new passion.

 

Clément joined our community, which has been growing since the success of our Kickstarter campaign in 2015. We recently created “First” product range, to meet your demand for a more affordable product. Wheels that compose the First rolling parts are adapted to all types of ground. There characteristics are suitables for beginners: with a 80 A hardness, they are malleable enough to grip an irregular floor, keeping an hardness which make you improve quickly. The wheels are more adapted to a novice practice, with more malleable rubber, to progress quickly. And these plate have a distance between front and back wheels above the average, it enables to have a comfortable longitudinal stability. You can find different product ranges in a previous article.

Strolling in the city or on country roads provide an unequalled feeling of freedom. Whether you’re walking to work or doing sports, there is a Flaneurz pair for you.. Feel free to go on our e-shop to discover our differents models.Lionel has already covered more than 3000 km with his detachable roller skates: Huarache and  Adidas Crazy ADV which he acquired with the Change Your Shoes offer.

I always liked the feeling of freedom that roller skating gives and I change my shoes according to the use. Both for shopping, hiking and for lifestyle  (yes it happens).

 

Anthony, freelance journalist:

I haven’t been skating before, and I’m not a sportsman at all, so it allows me to do a little sport very easily and without feeling it.

 

Paul-Marie : 

I use my Flaneurz in my daily life. To go to my music studio and also to my partner studio, it completely change the way I move in Paris. I also use them on international show with my band Caravan Palace. We travel especially in USA and that allows me to visit the cities where we play.

/FLANEURZ AT YOUR FEET: TWO YEARS LATER...

 

In 2017, the collaboration with Veja contributed to the development of our community. Anthony discovered our detachable roller skates  with this partnership.

 “I was following Veja’s Instagram account and came across the collaboration with Flaneurz, which gave me the idea to follow them and then getting a pair

 

Léo, for his part, tell us about his satisfaction about his detachable roller skates quality.

Very good, the quality is here. The product hasn't moved at all.

 

Producing quality detachable roller skates is our key focus to allow you to ride freely.James, director of United SK8S - a roller disco school based in Scotland - talks about the online buying process. He plans to expand his Flaneurz collection with a Doc Martens pair.

 “Not to mention the delivery of parcels to the local post office, which is very efficient especially for me, living abroad. I look forward to receiving my new Dr Martens pair.“

 

 

It confirms the robustness and quality of these “Change Your Shoes”, hardly tested.

So far I’ve used my Flaneurz to walk around the city. Besides our roads here in Edinburgh are really bad and it is very difficult to ride.

 

Anthony did the same observation about all these daily trips:

My skates are extremely robust and the mechanism still works just as well after 1 year of use. The format is perfect to fit in my backpack, which allows me to integrate them into my daily life.
